>> that's madness. >> maybe so, but it's not half as mad as the idea that brought us to this point. >> is there such a thing as a higher dimension, a parallel universe where otherworldly things can happen? ah. over the years, artists, writers, and filmmakers have tried to answer that question, creating some dazzling works of science fiction in the process. but are the higher dimensions we see in sci-fi really fiction? meet maggie, scientist by day and sci-fi fanatic by night. maggie's watching a 1950s film about scientists who invent a device that catapults them into the fourth dimension, where they can walk through walls and read minds. like the rest of us, maggie lives in a three-dimensional world. but she also appears to have an interest in alternate dimensions. in 1940, master sci-fi author robert heinlein wrote the short story "and he built a crooked house." in the story, our hero builds his home from an unfolded four-dimensional hypercube. when an earthquake strikes, the house folds up, creating the world's first four-dimensional house, where occupants can look down a hallway

things they use. households in such simple economies are almost completely self-sufficient. at the other end of the spectrum are highly complex economies in which people specialize in one particular job, like these shoe salesmen in morocco. specialization means people are no longer self-sufficient, but depend on each other. the shoe salesmen are dependent on the shoemakers, and the shoemakers are dependent on the tanners, and so on. this dependence on others makes society in general more complex, so specialization is a measure of society's overall complexity. archaeologists find evidence of specialization everywhere -- in the buildings and sculpture of ancient cities, and in crafts like elegant jade earrings, decorated pottery and even skulls with jade inlays in their teeth. these craft items were all made by specialists who worked at the ancient maya city of copan. between a.d. 400 and 800, this magnificent city flourished as one of the major centers of maya art and culture. copan was built in a broad mountain valley on the western border of honduras. at its height, the economic system

aristotle, wrote a series of paradoxes that still give us pause today. one of the best known tells the story of achilles and the tortoise and their race. achilles is such a fast runner, he gives the tortoise a head start. they each run at constant speeds: achilles very fast, the tortoise very slow. after a finite amount of time, achilles gets to where the tortoise started, but the tortoise will have moved on. it takes achilles a finite amount of time to get to the tortoise's next spot, but by the time he arrives, the tortoise will have moved on from there as well. and so on, and so on, over and over again, ad infinitum. despite what our senses tell us, zeno is telling us that achilles will never catch the tortoise. zeno's paradoxes were a big problem for the greek philosophers, and they did just about everything they could to avoid confronting the infinite because they based their arithmetic and their entire worldview on something much more tangible: geometry. their notion of the mathematical and the physical was intimately linked to the practice of measuring objects using arbitrary bu

for us. not quite mission accomplished but it seems like hollande was welcomed, indeed. >> yes. francois hollande saw this as a mission of three stages to prevent the rebels from continuing their advance south, to recapture towns taken by the rebels and restore territorial integrity sovereignty to mali. the third part of the mission will take much longer. let's take a look at the president's day in tim puck to - timbuktu. he sent french troops to mali three weeks ago and now has come to congratulate them. the rebel advance has been halted and french and malian troops have recaptured towns in the north and east of the country. francois hollande has come to thank french troops for what he sees as their successful work in mali but the mission will not be complete until the whole of the country is under central control and that's not the case. the president heads for the center and a rapturous welcome. people are grateful to the french for ridding the city of al qaeda-linked rebels and want to thank hollande personally. then it's back to the airport where i managed to grab a quick

(thomas schatz) one thing that happens as we watch the film, that what we have learned to live with in terms of a character's psychology and set of behaviors, if pushed just a little ways, is pretty frightening.

tells us? the equation of gravity just tells us that there's an attractive force, 'f' between all things and for any two things that attractive force depends upon, is proportional to, is related to the product of the masses of the two things. this might be a planet, one. this might be another planet, two. those two planets are tugging on each other with the force that depends very much on how much mass they have, but it also peters out with distance square. as the distance between those planets or those chunks of matter or those particles, as the distance between increases, guess what happens to the force? just what you would expect to happen. - larger or smaller? - smaller. how many say, "oh, it seems to me "as the planets get further and further away, they pull harder and harder on each other?" stand up, i wanna see what you look like. nobody say that. but you see, we can say that statement here mathematically by putting this downstairs, huh? as that make the distance big, what happens to the force? can you see that mathematically? you see it conceptually too, far away, far away
